    UN Office on Drugs and Crime, Legislative Guides for the Implementation of the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organised Crime and the Protocols thereto (New York, NY: UN, 2004), pp. 10–11: ‘It must be strongly emphasised that, while offences must involve transnationality and organised criminal groups for the Convention and its international cooperation provisions to apply, neither of these must be made elements of the domestic offence (Article 34, para. 2).’ In addition, more specifically in relation to THB pp. 258–259, ‘Notwithstanding the comment in Paragraph 23 about the Convention dealing only with situations having an element of transnationality or organised crime, it will be noted that the relevant provisions of the Convention and the Protocol must be reviewed carefully. The text of the provisions is relatively broad.’ ….’It is important for drafters of legislation to note that the provisions relating to the involvement of transnationality and organised crime do not always apply.’, ‘… the Convention provides that legislators must not incorporate elements concerning transnationality or an organised criminal group into domestic offence provisions.’… ‘In the case of trafficking in persons, domestic offences should apply even where transnationality and the involvement of organised criminal groups do not exist.’
